The Harlow Group LLC
Health Care Law and Consulting
David Harlow's experience in both the public and private sectors over the past twenty years affords him a unique perspective on legal, policy and business issues facing the health care community. Health care providers, vendors and payors of all shapes and sizes rely on him to help them navigate the maze of regulatory and business issues facing them on a daily basis.
Mr. Harlow is adept at assisting clients in structuring their business organizations, relationships and processes, as well as approaches to individual transactions, administrative proceedings, formal and informal negotiations with regulatory agencies, and legislative strategies, so as to maximize the realization of organizational goals in a highly regulated environment. Over the years, Mr. Harlow's clients have included a broad range of health care providers and organizations: individual physicians and complementary health care practitioners, physician group practices, diagnostic imaging facilities, ambulance services, nursing facilities, other acute and nonacute inpatient and outpatient facilities, vendors, suppliers and managed care organizations.
Mr. Harlow emphasizes the practice of preventive law, anticipating potential flashpoints early in the course of a project, and working to avoid litigation or regulatory enforcement actions whenever possible.
